"washington journal" is next. host: >> host: the white house is to eating -- is disputing claims. the u.s. ambassador to madrid will appear to discuss buying in the country after press reports that the nsa collected information on phone calls. chiefs from those and other countries are expected to travel to the u.s. to discuss those issues. this topic, even on the sunday talk shows yesterday. for our first 45 minutes, when it comes to physically monitoring by the nsa on our allies, we want to get your thoughts on whether the u.s. should rethink spying on allies. here's how you can tell us this morning. you can also reach out to us on social media. you can always send us an e-mail to journal at c-span.org. stores today and yesterday stemming on new developments when it comes to monitoring of ally activity by the nsa. new about obama spying. thatsa denies reports obama was told in 2010 of nsa spying on angela merkel and allowed it to continue. on sunday, the german tabloid siding unknow
of obamacare under congress' general taxing power. the court noted specifically that, quote, even if the taxing power enables congress to impose a tax on not obtaining health insurance, any tax must still comply with other requirements in the constitution, unquote. mr. speaker, i want to read that one more time. even if the taxing power enables congress to impose a tax on not obtaining health insurance, any tax must still comply with other requirements in the constitution, unquote. in short, mr. speaker, obamacare was upheld as a tax. the supreme court did not and has not yet considered a challenge to the affordable care act's taxing provisions on the grounds that it violated the origination clause in the united states constitution. and, mr. speaker, it most certainly did exactly that. mr. speaker, the origination clause is found in article 1, section 7 of the constitution. and it states, quote, all bills for raising revenue shall originate in the house of representatives, unquote. in creating obamacare, senator harry reid took an entirely unrelated bill, h.r. 3590, containing just 714 words, a

[laughter] >> thank you, i will put this somewhere else. >> thank you, chairman. welcome, everyone. i feel the house members are here. and today we are considering the resolution on the budget in the house amendment and we will begin with opening statements and i will recognize myself in and senator patty murray. each house will be recognized in the order of seniority alternating between minority and majority and since there are more from the senate and the house, asked her if they have made t
tax rates. great infrastructure. we have done all the things we think we can do to help this be a great productive work environment, but there are certain things that are out of control that dramatically impact jobs in tennessee. when i hear manufacturers tell us, we love being in tennessee and we love the work environment, but if we had this agreement in place, we could produce x more jobs. it is frustrating to me as a governor because it is something that is out of my control, but it is critical for me to lend that voice, whether it is in washington or anywhere else, to raise it. we have worked hard to set up a great working environment in tennessee. we think we have it. there are certain things that are beyond our control. >> so i understand everyone on this panel is an enthusiast to these agreements, but we want to be clearheaded about some of the competitive costs. in the construction-mining business, what you see as the competitiveness that would come from -- imports would be less expensive? what are the challenges you will face of some of these deals come to be? >

with a blue cross silver atmo plan with tax credits, in that case, instead of $800 a month, it's $77 a month. and let me refer you to the interview on "meet the press" with the blue cross florida ceo. he was asked by david gregory, in florida, the oldest and largest health care plan provider, florida blue cross, confirmed it is cutting 300,000 policies. and this is what the chairman of blue cross of florida said, "we're not cutting people, and i quote, we're actually transitioning people. what we've been doing is informing folks that their plan doesn't meet the test of the essential health benefits. therefore, they have a choice of many options that we make available through the exchange, and, in fact, with subsidy, many people will be getting better plans at a lesser cost." so this has become a matter of legitimate discussion, and i think all of us would appreciate your addressing it. >> sir, again, going back to prior to the affordable care act days, these individuals in a small group or individual market had no protections. they had no guarantees of coverage, and they were still being cha
, in a balanced way. we've heard from senators about the need to modernize the tax code and move toward real tax reform. while the committee can't get it done. we can move in that direction in a substantial way. making a modest cut of only 5% of the trillion dollars a year we spend through the tax code would make huge dent in the deficit. lastly, we have to don't make some reduction in direct spending. although i know that's the area taken the hardest hit. i'll insist on doing in a way that put a circle of production around around the most vulnerable and honoring our promises to seniors, veterans, and about to retirement to protect them from cuts. chairman rhode island i know, chairman muir ray. i'm glad we have come together. we need focus not on the area of disagreement but priority we share. reducing the deficit, and ensuring our long-term prosperity. thank you. >> thank you. i've learn something. i know, you refer to yourself as delaware begans. senator ayotte. >> thank you, mr. chairman. i want to thank you and thank chairman murray for your leadership and everyone at the table who is comi

money, there's a tax write off, not much, but a little, and us and a center for reporting out there fill the gap, but i do think that overall, our media landscape is being driven increasingly by the news of the moment, celebrity news, political news, real news, and there's a lot less time and energy, resources available for doing deep dives or looking at things not in the immediate spotlight in front of us as were all on our twit of-like hamster wheel. >> host: viewers have questions or comments, the bureau chief, the lines are open this morning. republicans call 202-a 85-3 # 88 is. democrats 202-585-3880. independents, 202-585-3882. we'll talk to him for about the next 40 minutes or so on the "washington journal," and as we lay out the lines, i want to talk to you about how you prefer to describe your magazine. is it progressive? is liberal the term? what do you say to folks who call your magazine as listed on here frequently asked questions page left pinko rag? >> they are wrong. i mean, we are a progressive-driven organization. you know, and i, the way i look at it is i tend to see ou
. for individual retirement accounts, i.r.a.'s, under the tax code. today retirees are more likely to rely on 401k's and i.r.a.'s and are less likely to have defined benefit plans from their employers. at the same time, the natural products have become increasingly complex. because the rules governing the rights of investors and the responsibilities of advisors are more than 35 years old, d.o.l. is attempting to modernize these rules and -- in order to reflect the changing nature of the retirement marketplace. given these realities it is necessary for the department to make sure that the professionals offering retirement advice have a duty to put their clients' interests first before their own or at very least tell their customers that they may be conflicting. at the same time the s.e.c. is considering moving forward on a rule making that would impose a uniform fiduciary standard of conduct for broker dealers and investment advisors, consistent with the dodd-frank act. this would ensure that whatever the business model, if an individual is providing personalized investment advice out securities to

and nobody is going to put you out of business. the tax payers are here. you stated last month that may be $1.68 billion we heard in 2009 that the fha was stable and sound and secure from the future. so this creates a lot of the concern with american people. it keeps mounting a part of the government that has accrued an enormous amount of debt. the foreign budget writer and paul ryan said the same thing that the steam is out of control and that will collapse like greece. they have said it in many ways. so i would hope that you would share that concern and accountability back to the american people. i think as you spoke to us and appeared before the committee in february, you said then that you tested the financial health of the fha and that right after that the next day the government accountability office the high risk due to the greater of all morality to fraud, waste, abuse and mismanagement are the need for transformation. how do you respond to that? do you understand the impact that you are having whacks and then you would be considered a high-risk agency to the taxpayer >> i take mauney

"politicsnation" with reverend al sharpton starts now. good evening, al. >> good evening, ed. >>> and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the truth about the gop effort to kill obama care. it's not really about the health care website. it's about the entire law. today republican leaders made that clear. >> you know, the problem with obama care isn't just the website. it's the whole law. >> and the bottom line is the problems with obama care run deeper than just the website. >> hear that? this isn't about the website glitches. it's about scrapping the whole thing. never mind that 17 million children with pre-existing conditions are now covered. never mind that insurance premiums are 16% lower than expected. the gop wants all this to wither on the vine. and they're offering no alternatives of their own. and today democ
